This is a great event for all ages, skills, and fitness levels! Come explore unique, pristine habitats within Graham Creek Nature Preserve as your 3 member team races to complete at least 12 of the 14 Earth Day Scramble obstacles (physical and mental challenges) scattered within a 2 mile radius. There is no set course-only a packet with clues, site map, and a Preserve passport for your stamps-so strategy wins the race! Join us at the post-race party with music, a free outdoor environmental expo with local exhibitors, and a family friendly educational event; all celebrating Earth Day!
